Edgar Allan Poe: A Light & Enlightening Look

Most people know the name of Edgar Allan Poe, but few know that, at the age of 20, he single handedly invented the literary horror story and the short story as we know it today, but that most of his stories pale in comparison to his own life—filled with death and horror. Edgar Allan Poe: A Light and Enlightening Look is a thoroughly entertaining fifty-two minute video program featuring Professor Elliot Engel. Parts of the program were shot on location in Richmond, Virginia, where Poe lived for many years. Professor Elliot Engel brings Edgar Allan Poe to life in a way that will appeal to young and old alike.

“[Professor Engel] uses a captivating mixture of humor, drama, and pathos to introduce us to an author most of us know only through his works, but whose life is just as morbid and fascinating as anything he wrote on paper. Poe remains one of the most important figures in English literature and his story deserves to be told with the respect and detail that Elliot Engel provides.”
